Hot 97 Summer Jam Lines Up Kendrick Lamar, Wu-Tang Clan, Miguel, and 2 Chainz
With A$AP Rocky, French Montana, Wale, Fabolous, Joe Budden, and Chris Brown for June 2
Kendrick Lamar, Wu-Tang Clan, Miguel, 2 Chainz, and more have been added to the list of talent for Hot 97’s Summer Jam 2013 festival. The single-day event will take place on June 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
This year’s installment, which marks the 20th anniversary of the annual showcase, will also feature performances from French Montana, A$AP Rocky, Fabolous, Wale, Joe Budden, and Chris Brown (ugh). These artists are joining Summer Jam 2013’s previously announced performers: Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$, A$AP Ferg, Smoke DZA, and more, all of whom are playing the smaller Festival Village stage.
Last year’s Summer Jam was famously disrupted when Nicki Minaj backed out of her scheduled set at the last minute after Hot 97 on-air personality Pete Rosenberg insulted the “High School” star in front of the audience. SPIN’s Brandon Soderberg dubbed it “The Worst Beef Ever.”
Tickets for Summer Jam 2013 can be purchased through Ticketmaster.
